A few weeks ago I had a moment when I realized that my sucktastic job wasn’t going to get any better, ever. So I marched upstairs to my supervisor’s office and resigned.
Fast forward to a great interview at a job I think I would love. They want to meet me for a followup, which is great right? All is well except that the job is in a different state. If I’m lucky enough to get it and accept the position I will have to very quickly pack up a 20 year life and move to a different state. Not to mention travel just for the follow up meeting.
I like to consider myself an intelligent, fairly sophisticated woman, but I have no idea how to manage the logistics of this new life I seem to have created for myself. I’ve never done anything like this before.
The idea of getting a job so quickly is obviously a relief, but on the other hand I haven’t had a vacation in 7 years and I’d really like some time to relax, travel up and find a place, then move my stuff and relax some more before I put my nose back to the grindstone. I can’t even imagine how to make all of that happen when they’re looking for someone to start asap.
I get that I’m in a very lucky place, but I’m still freaking out. Any advice would be appreciated on interstate moving, taking an out of state job, or whatever. Just help me calm down and get my head around this.
